Default need opinion

I have completely changed my mind about getting a "ricer" bodykit i guess it was just a stage i was going through. I do like the viggen body kit but i was wondering if the viggen front bumper would look good with the se side skirts and rear bumper.
input please

check it out. I don't see a pic with just the front bumper, but you get the idea. Abdukted also has vig bumpers, but his is a 9-3, not an NG.

figured i would throw this in there, i have also been looking for a vig bumper, cuz i found side skirts, so if figured i would get the bumper too...i was quoted for 300 from a junkyard for the bumper, decided to not even consider looking on the internet, but from a saab dealership it was even more...???so hopefully i can find one for cheaper cuz they are a really nice piece of work...

not to mention you will have to pay international shipping from the uk...

viggen bumpers can be had for much cheaper in europe because a lot of non-viggen 9-3's were aero spec, and used the front and rear body treatments. But getting one for cheap and having it shipped cancels your cost saving out. getting a viggen bumper from a junkyard at all is a great find. There are only something like 3-4000 viggens out there in the US, it would have to go to a salvage yard on rollover or flood damage to preserve the bumpers. Jump on that $300 bumper before someone else finds out where it is is my advice =P.
